Everything we wanted!
Oglebay was perfect! We looked at venues all over Pittsburgh including Seven Springs which is a similar resort the venue, Oglebay was the last place we looked and our favorite. The atmosphere was both laid back and classy at the same time, all of our guests were comfortable and had a great time! The staff went above and beyond to make our day run smooth and helped with small things that we forgot. They were extremely accommodating and organized. Ashley, our planner was on top of everything and made sure we answered all of the questions we needed to in order to make our day run smoothly.Sent on 05/29/2019
We had a welcome event in the Fort Henry room, our ceremony on the west spa patio and our reception in the banquet hall, all were perfect. We also planned a backup room for rain but did not have to make the decision till the day of the ceremony. After the reception the glassworks bar was right next to the reception hall and those that wanted to keep the party going went there. The new BBQ and craft beer restaurant at the driving range is a great place to hang out. Since we had our wedding on Sunday of Memorial day weekend many of our guests stayed 3 nights and enjoyed all of the weekends events and all of the amenities of the resort.
We stayed in a cottage which was very nicely updated and were greeted by several deer outside our door every morning.
Advice: we choose to leave our room block open to all levels of room including the value rooms so our guests could match their budget, if you want your guests to stay in more updated rooms you can pick what levels of room are in the block.
Overall we highly recommend Oglebay!

Oglebay Resort - Awesome in EVERY way!
Oglebay was so wonderful to work with! The ability to say that, though, is due 100% to Mrs. Ashley Dunlap. Myself and my new husband are from Wheeling, so Oglebay is LITERALLY in our backyard and a place we so often took for granted. However, when we visited Oglebay as a potential venue and met Ashley for the first time – she showed us Oglebay in a new light. It was so fun because Ashley was SO excited, and it made me SO excited to have someone like her on our team! It is really fun to be excited about your own wedding and then also get the opportunity to work with someone who is excited about your wedding, too. Ashley was literally ALWAYS there for us (I mean… she answered panicked 2am e-mails… who does that?! God bless her). Anything I asked about, she could do. When I was sick on wedding day and we needed to make game-day adjustments, Ashley did it. When there were several vendors with several needs that I could not keep straight myself, Ashley did it. When I had ANY question, Ashley had the answer. When wedding day was hot and we needed water, Ashley was there in 2 minutes with a cooler. When we planned a wedding during COVID and felt like we were lone soldiers on a huge island, Ashley was beside us (with her cute mask on). Also, Oglebay is pretty dang awesome, too! The food was incredible. They work internally with a bunch of different vendors so you do not have to. The venue was GORGEOUS. The grounds’ flowers were immaculate. They were so flexible with the COVID insanity and allowed us to postpone to a later date with no financial penalty. From what I am hearing from other “COVID brides,” this is a pretty amazing thing. My wedding day at Oglebay was PERFECT. From start to finish, it was simply a dream. If you are considering Oglebay for your wedding venue, I cannot encourage this decision enough. You will not regret it!Sent on 09/23/2020

An amazing venue!
We has such an amazing wedding at Oglebay. They are very thorough with all the details and super responsive! We had our ceremony and reception in Glessner, it was absolutely beautiful and perfect. The person who was supposed to help direct the wedding ended up having a family emergency the morning of and Oglebay got another wedding coordinator in very quickly and made everything worry free. There was a mix up on some extra plates of food that they were very happy to fix as well. Couldn't ask for much more!!Sent on 07/20/2020
Great vendor whom I have had the pleasure of working along side for many years. A beautiful place and setting to have an event. Look forward to many more years of fun and memories at Oglebay Resort.
